Chapter 157 

Mr. FitzGerald, your meals are all prepared to standard and brought up to you. What are you doing coming down here to cookYork muttered under his breath, his voice barely above a whisper.” 

Dining with Kristin should have been a quiet affair

From now on, Kristin eats with me. Work has been hell, and I can’t afford to be without a secretary by my side,Rhett said, his voice deep and firm

York took a deep breath, feeling the familial bonds teeter on the edge. Mr. FitzGerald, count me In! I’ll join you for a meal.” 

Rhett’s personal chefs hailed from Michelinstarred restaurants, not average Joe’s dinner plate

Go to the restroom.Rhett instructed York

What for?York asked, puzzled

Take a look in the mirror.” 

Kristin nearly choked on her laughter, trying to maintain composure as she bowed her head and focused on her rice

York, feeling slighted, hung his head low and concentrated on his meal

In the exclusive club

Mr. Bryce, our families are allied through marriage, a union acknowledged in the press. We sink and swim together. Regardless of whether you and Adrienne share a romantic foundation, you are her fiancé and future husband. You’re dutybound to protect her,Hertha explained as she met with James. As for Summer, whether or not the child belongs to the Bryce family, you and Adrienne will have your children in the future.” 

James leaned back on the couch, eyeing Hertha. Ms. Haywood, are you here today to have me intercede with Rhett once again?” 

That’s your responsibility,Hertha said, meeting his gaze

James looked at her pointedly. Ms. Haywood, it seems you’re not seeing the situation clearly.Hertha furrowed her brows

The child shares my bloodline, and Adrienne is merely a fiancée,James reminded her, making it clear that without value to him, Adrienne meant nothing

Mr. Bryce, our family and the Bryce family have been close for generations. You can’t just ignore thisHertha took a deep breath. This time, we implore you to step in.” 

Finally, Hertha dropped her airs and was indeed there to plead with James

So, Hertha, might you be so inclined to discuss with me your relationship with R straightened up. his eyes piercing as he focused on her

To my knowledge, six years ago, you were found in Rhett’s room, but it seems he nev returned there that night.” 

Jameswords carried weight

He had been in Silvergrove City, having people investigate events from six years ago

He needed to determine who had left Kristin’s room that night or who was Summer’s biological 

father

He had to find out before Summer’s paternity was exposed

You’re inquiring about me.” Hertha clenched her fingers tightly

I don’t have the patience to beat around the bush with you.James pressed

Hertha knew of his capabilities and after a long silence conceded, Righthe didn’t return to his room, but Rhett doesn’t know that. He thinks he did, so he always assumed the person from six years ago was me.” 

She knew she couldn’t fool James, but James wouldn’t expose her. He still saw her value

Whose room did Rhett enter?James asked, his tone heavy

Not sure.Hertha shook her head. I also had someone check it out. That night, the only woman who stayed on the same floor was the star Patty who didn’t seem to have that kind of relationship with Rhett though. If it was Patty, she couldn’t hide from Rhett.” 

James naturally found out

Is it possible that Rhett went to another floor?That night, Rhett was framed, and it was possible that he had been drugged in his wine and entered the wrong room

It’s too long to check again.Hertha shook her head

We can’t find it, and Rhett either. In this way, I insist that it is me, he will fail to argue with me unless the woman comes out to dispel rumors in person, orshe is pregnant with Rhett’s child at one time.Hertha spoke again

Otherwise, it can only be her

Rhett owed her for the rest of her life

For six years, if that woman had this scheming, she would have come out to clarify, I guess she who happened to Rhett didn’t know it was Rhett at all.Hertha looked at James

James darkened his face

Now, what he feared most was that Rhett went into Kristin’s room

Coincidences like that didn’t just happen

Rubbing his temples, James spoke gravely, il you wish to win theit over; td slnick 764 16 Met swiftly and ensure Kristin and Summer are unlistmed when you persuade her to leave Rhett 

It was to avoid any further complications

You meanHertha was sharp, instantly grasping James implication

She gasped, Are you suggesting that Summer might be Rhett’s child

Summer is my son James said firmly 

Hertha frowned, choosing to say no more

Adrienne really overstepped this time, she didn’t even share a child. Seems like her stint in detention didn’t do her any good. If Rhett chooses to coms at her, there’ll be no one to save her. So, if you care about your family’s safety. I’d suggest you cut lies.” 

With a stern warning, James stood up and left

Hertha inhaled sharply, understanding that James was suggesting the Haywood family abandon Adrienne

The Haywood family was on the brink of a public relations disaster, and the only Way Out Was a drastic one. They had to expose Adrienne’s misdeeds and shin her off overseas

James, in all likelihood, would break off the engagement if they did

But if they hesitated and Rhett went public with the dirt he had on them, it would spell catastrophe for the Haywood family, and James would call off the wedding anyway

The fallout would drag them all down with it

If the Haywood family went down, they’d be finished. It was a Case of desperate times calling for desperate measures, Adnenne was the fool 

Even though Adinenne was her flesh and blood, Hertha couldn’t afford the luxury of sisterly affection right now, it was every woman for herself in this cutthroat world

After a long, silent spell on the couch, Hertha’s chilly fingers dialed Adrienne’s number. Can you get a lock of James hair

Hertha, he won’t even see me,Came Adrienne’s frantic voice. What do I do?” 

handle it. You just book a flight out of Silvergrove City and leave tomorrow.Hertha instructed her to flee

But HerthaAdrienne protested

Do you want to ruin our family, or just lie low abroad for a few years?” Hertha reminded her 

Why should Adrienne began, the resentment clear in her voice

*Bacase it’s fonett we’re dealing with!Hertha Snapped with fury

1129 

Scared silent, Adrienne had nothing more to say. Everyone knew that crossing Rhett was a oneway ticket to ruin. If Rhett set his sights on destroying the Haywood family, they wouldn’t stand a chance

Hertha, please help me. I don’t want to break it off with James,Adrienne sobbed

Now you beg for mercy with not a single thought in your head,Hertha said, massaging her temples with frustration. James is going to dump you, but if you lay low abroad for a while and wait until Rhett tires of Kristin and this whole mess blows over, you can come back. At least our family would be safe.” 

Adrienne wept on the other end of the line

Irritated, Hertha ended the call, her fingers trembling as she reached for a cigarette. Lighting it, she felt her heart pounding with anxiety

James had been cryptic today, and she had read between the lines

It seemed she had to do more than just arrange a paternity test between Summer and James. She also needed to use Summer’s hair to test against Rhett’s DNA
